When thinking ahead to the New Year, my resolutions for my classroom are many! I would love to get to know my students better and find a way to meet every one of their learning needs as well as interests. I want to continue my record of providing equity to all students, making sure they all know they have a safe and respected place in my classroom. If I could get them to see how everything connects to the real world, that would be a goal, too!

My New Year's Resolutions are based around trying to take better care of myself. For me, that means getting more sleep and eating less meat in 2020. I feel like I live a pretty healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise, but I need to allow myself more rest. Eating less meat is continuing an effort I've been working on for a few years to be more mindful of what it takes to produce the food I buy and eat.

I’m not a resolution guy, so when I was asked if I could come up with something, it threw me for a loop. I ran through all the typical things, but nothing seemed like something that would stick. Then I happened upon something simple that would improve my life, and the life of the person I’ve spent most of my time with, my wife. My wife and I hug and kiss every night before we go to sleep. It’s the highlight of my day. What if I were to double, or even triple, that output? That’s my resolution-hug my wife more often.
